Preview: The Philadelphia Flyers will head to the Madison Square Garden to take on the New York Rangers. The Flyers are 40-18-6 for 86 points. New York comes into the game with a 34-29-4 record, for 68 points.
Philadelphia is the top team in the Eastern Conference, but lead Pittsburgh by just two points. The Flyers come in as the second highest scoring team in the league, scoring 3.2 goals per game. Their leading scorer has been Claude Giroux, with 58 points. Giroux has dished out 37 assists and scored 21 goals.
The Flyers, despite going to the Stanley Cup Finals last season, won just 41 games, so they are just one shy of matching last year’s total.
The Rangers come into the game as the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference. The Rangers are just one point ahead of the Carolina Hurricanes for the spot. New York has struggled at home, winning just 14 of 33 games. The Rangers top offensive threat has been Brandon Dubinsky, and his 43 points. 24 of those points have been assists, while he has 19 goals on the year.
The Rangers went 38-33 last season, so they also look to match or overtake last season’s record.
